Crime reports or police reports provide important information pertaining to an incident and can be valuable sources of evidence when a case is filed. Although not all police reports result to court cases, it is an important means for those who are researching an individual or doing a statistical data report. Most counties in fact have these data compiled and submitted to the Department of Justice especially records pertaining to sex offenders who live in the county.
Most of these records, especially arrest reports are available to the general public and can be requested for free if the requestor is a victim of the crime. Colusa county arrest records for example are available for crime victims free of charge. They can visit the Sheriff’s office from Monday through Friday at 8am to 4:30pm or call the Sheriff’s Office for more information.
